If you still pay any vague semblance of attention to what we put up on this blog, here is a big live mix i just did combining a lot (but not all) of whats been cookin'. Theres a range of styles, including beats, trap, dub[step] and some wonky/glitch/2-step/grime etc. from around world. Check it out yaow
So it's been a while (like always), but I have something quite compelling to present: Boston-based M. Constant's Bugged EP... four originals, three remixes, and a bunch of funky punch. This man's style treads a wobbly line between beats and dance, getting your head nodding and your booty shaking, usually at the same time. Its a bit like rubbing your stomach and patting your head, but even more satisfying. These beats (?) are creative and organic, morphing style and feeling right underneath your feet... but M. Constant keeps it all tied together in a very musical way. I could go into more detail, but I'd rather let him speak for himself below.
Folks have been sleepin on the wayniac for too long. But I get the feeling from his recent signing to Stones Throw, not to mention some shows at SXSW a few weeks ago, that this cat's going places. And man oh man am I down to follow.
Dope producer, dope MC, and with a killer live show to boot. Check our previous posts on the man's work here, and get ready for dem Stones Throw releases...
And finally, you may grab his new rap tape, just released this week, for free HERE:
Matthewdavid has gone and released a FREE mix tape of remixes and flips. Although i (embarrassingly?) don't know the originals, these 8 tracks are definitely some bling for your ears. Matthewdavid seems pretty on point here; each of the the tracks is relatively short and very concise, which prevents you from getting lost in his layered textures and losing a sense of direction in these beats. Theres also a ton of bass (no surprises)... oh yeah and its FREE.

Sorry we haven't been on the ball as much - college, y'know. But both El Langosta and I have some pretty sick things lined up for y'all, so stick around.
